ST. LOUIS — A man who allegedly held a gun to a teenage girl’s head during a home robbery Monday night is in critical condition after police say he was shot by the girl’s father.

A second man is dead.

The family reports that two men confronted the teenaged girl at about 11:00 pm in front of her home.

St. Louis police say the 17-year-old girl was outside of her home getting something from a car when two armed men confronted her and demanded that she return to her home.

The girl`s father saw the suspects walking his daughter toward the home. That`s when police say the teen`s father, a 34 year old man, got his gun and fired several shots at the suspects, hitting both of them. The girl`s mother, also 34, got another gun and fired a round as well, not hitting either suspect.

The first suspect was pronounced dead at the scene. The second suspect ran away, got into the first suspect`s car and contacted his brother to take him to the hospital.

The suspect who was killed was a 31-year-old man. The second suspect is a 33-year-old man. He has gunshot wounds to his chest and both thighs.   Police say he will face charges.

There was also a five year old boy in the home.

Neighbors reported hearing the gunshots and one even had bullets fly through her home. Click here for more from her from FOX 2 in St. Louis.
